Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg – Japanese A5 beef toasties with oozing cheese! 50% discount this weekend!

Have pictures of meaty sandwiches with oozing cheese been inundating your Instagram feed lately? They are probably pictures of Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg’s beef toasties. I must say those pictures called out to me so much, I went to see what’s the big deal today. Seeing those pictures reminded me of Fong Sheng Hao’s toasted sandwiches and perhaps even Shake Shack!

Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg is Singapore’s first fast casual farm-to-table restaurant specialising in premium quality Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef Hamburgs, and at affordable prices. The reason for the affordable prices (ie less than $10) is because the brand holds an exclusive partnership with award-winning Hidakami Ranch in Japan.

Fong Sheng Hao Singapore

I visited the recently opened Paya Lebar Quarter over the weekend again and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was teeming with people. Certainly not the crazy crowds seen on the first few days, but a healthy crowd. That’s a good thing because the last thing we want is yet another boring mall that nobody wants to visit. Read this article for reasons why you should visit Paya Lebar Quarter, and it’s not just for the food.

Fong Sheng Hao Singapore

But one can’t escape from the allure of food establishments in Singapore. One such eatery is the famous Fong Sheng Hao from Taipei’s Shilin Market. They are most famous for their charcoal-grilled toasts and signature milk teas. The breads are made with butter from New Zealand at the central kitchen in Singapore, and toasted at the outlet itself. As for the tea, the black tea leaves are sourced from Lin Hua Tai Tea Co, which is Taiwan’s oldest tea shop at 140 years old, and sweetened with sugarcane syrup that has been boiled for 12 hours.

ToastBox at Greenwich V

ToastBox was another outlet us bloggers visited as part of the Greenwich V / OMY.SG Amazing Blogger Race competition. It’s no secret that I like patronising ToastBox. I’ve blogged about ToastBox on three separate occasions, read it here, here and here. I really like the Victorian, old school decor. The teh is pretty good and the tea cakes are so cute and affordable!

ToastBox at Greenwich V flanks the main entrance. You won’t miss it at all when walking or driving in. For our Bloggers Amazing Race challenge, we got to sample the Peanut Thick Toast as well as Chicken and Potato curry.

ToastBox serves hot meals so it’s not just a place for a snack, it’s also an option for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

They are pretty generous with the Peanut butter.

Butter Sugar Thick Toast at ToastBox

But this is my ultimate favourite at ToastBox. The Butter Sugar Thick Toast. Generous amounts of butter slathered onto hot fluffy toast, with sprinklings of sugar. It is SO GOOD. Trust me, not many places spread the butter so evenly for you. This is the best place to have butter sugar toast.

Steamed bread place

This is one of several places where you might find me before I go to work each day. Not that I really need the coffee to wake me up. But it’s nice to be able to sit down for a while and relax, get my thoughts straightened before stepping into the office. If it’s a mad rush from the time you jump out of bed until you reach the office, that just sounds very sad.

When I was younger, I abhorred coffee shops like these because they tended to be wet and dirty. Now, I find them exuding an irresistible air of nostalgia. It’s like taking a step back in time. I love finding gems like these.

Kopi here is quite good.

Steamed bread with kaya and peanut butter spread

Steamed bread place (8)

Quite a number of people come here just for this steamed bread. The bread is fluffy and soft. The peanut butter isn’t the thick kind though, it’s been kind of diluted by the kaya. I’m sure some people like it, but I think I have to ask for pure peanut butter the next time as I’m not really that big a fan of watery kaya. Another good place to have steamed bread would be at Tong Ah in Chinatown.

I don’t know about you, but I just love the idea of dining under the trees. Feels so old school! Did I mention that one used to be able to dine out in the open under the trees behind the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station?
